Fizzy Lifting Drinks

Simple in its self esteem Busted dreams Production into motion Brought on by one’s devotion Hammered into regret Enamored reject Multiple debts Doubt if I can ever get out Hanged man On a card Is my everlasting reward Devoured By any means or measure Forever Chasing my tail It’s gone Off the rails Pretender Return to sender Melting moment by moment Into slow motion emotion Cost gone up Shake me down I no longer wear that crown Emptiness Swallowed up Broken bruised refrain Today’s text is tomorrow s pain Playing out in perpetual motion One day melts into the next It’s the lonely mans pretext.
